Exclusive Trusted Magazine Q&A with Nikolina Vitor

How could you describe your career path in a few words?

rewarding and fascinating. The confluence of these two disciplines has led me

to make remarkable discoveries. There are few fields that offer extensive

material such as Neurology and Physics which then force an abstract

perspective and thought process to develop an expert understanding. It truly is


Can you tell us about the bionic and artificial organs your company is

currently creating?

Of course. We are developing morphological, durable mechanical organs that

are to some extent biochemically active to permanently replace organs reaching

end stage failure. These components together provide precise control over

multiple heterogeneous cell types and material components to imitate and

replace physiological functions and re-establish the human body’s fundamental

about their own preconceptions, mentalities, cultures and views which they may

not have contemplated.

Based on your experience, what’s the key success factor for a female


There are two. The first being complete absorption and focus on that thing you

want to achieve. Pursue it with a deep sense of drive knowing that someone else

is working towards that exact same goal, the only differing factor in who gets

there in the end will be who was more focused. The second is a mentality you

have to harness. Understand your presence as a female leader may be met with
